Third Fight In Just Over Two Months Too Much For Dustin Pague

The UFC asked Dustin Pague to step up on short notice and face Ken Stone late in June just a few days after earning a win over Jared Papazian. Pague was defeated, much like he was against Chico Camus Saturday night at UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II.

Since facing Papazian on June 8, Pague has fought twice more. He is 1-2 in those three encounters, dropping his overall record to 11-7 with a decision loss to Camus.

“I don’t want to make any excuses about the loss, but I really need to heal my body up before I step in the Octagon (again),” Pague said. “So, I’m going to pray the UFC gives me another chance to prove what I can do.”

Pague had numerous chances to put Camus away, but he was unable to secure a finishing submission hold. Before entering the UFC in late 2011, Pague had won five consecutive fights.
